Due to changes made to the official Scottish Parliament website at the start of 2011, our parser that used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Scottish Parliament again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Shona Robison: Each of the eight pilot sites involved in the Pharmore Pilot Programme have been subject to ongoing local monitoring and evaluation since the programme launch in September 2008.
Feedback from local project teams indicate that the Pharmore programme has helped to open up access to a range primary care services, as well as complementing existing local services, further establishing community pharmacy as a pivotal part of the wider primary care team.
A full evaluation of the Pharmore Pilot Programme will be commissioned which will inform the future design of community pharmacy based walk-in services and the extent to which they should be rolled out.
